The Southover Partnership is a charity that provides education for children and young people with special educational needs in our own school and, through our thriving Outreach Service which provides tailored one-to-one and group tuition in mainstream schools or at home commissioned by schools or local authorities. We work with children between the ages of 5-19 in the Outreach service. Our school aims to meet the needs of 11-19 year olds with autism, complex SEND and social, emotional and mental health issues. The school is based on three School Sites, Hutton Grove in N12, Southgate in N14 and Kingsbury in NW9, and the outreach services work across 12 Greater London Authorities.
We are looking for a dynamic, flexible and enthusiastic Speech and Language Therapist to join our multi-disciplinary team and work seamlessly with our education staff. This role involves providing integrated SaLT services to young people in our school based over multiple sites which includes a specialist 6th Form provision.
We are located in North London with three sites situated in Finchley, Southgate and Kingsbury. We work as one school on three sites, each having their own head teachers’ overseen by our executive head teacher. All sites work closely together, have extensive community links and believe in ‘thinking differently’ and being as creative as possible in our teaching.
You will be committed to providing the best opportunities for our students and ensuring every young person is supported to achieve their full potential. You will demonstrate a flexible approach to education and therapy, a willingness to get involved in all aspects of school life, and the ability to work under pressure with young people that can challenge us. You will have previous experience of working with young people with autism in other educational settings. Experience of working with young people with behaviour needs or mental health needs would also be desirable.
